with lee 6 cavity molds, doing so is easy. sizing and lubing can be done at any time, but mostly, i did it while I was waiting on another batch of lead to melt. back then, I used a star progressive sizer luber, but with today's Lee Hand sizer and liquid lube, no need to pay $500 for a sizer machine. all you need is a $40 Lee loading press and a $20 die and lube set.

every 10 seconds, that mold can be dropping out another cast of bullets, no problem, if you are running it and the alloy at the right temps. the mold has to be run at quite a bit lower temps, which is why you should quench it, while its full of lead. never get water near an unfilled mold. when you drop liquid lead into it, the resulting steam pressure will blow molten lead all over you and it STICKS to flesh, guys.
